    Just because it's a priority doesn't mean you rush out and get a stopgap solution. Nobody they can realistically trade for is going to bring a championship this season.

    At this point you just go with Patterson. He's earned it, and your 5 million isn't going to get you a guy that moves the needle when there are teams with more money, playing time and opportunity to...

    My dream scenario at this point is coming to some sort of deal with Luol Deng on a discount. Deng has taken less the last couple of seasons with the Heat and might have Ujiri connections (I really...

    That's why I like the pick. The Raps are far more likely to trade their way from good to great than to draft their way. Mobile skilled bigs are always going to have value, especially on rookie deals...

    Poetl seems to be described as a safe bet, the most likely of the remaining picks to be an NBA stalwart. That sounds boring, but I think this pick makes a lot of sense. It's an asset, and a surefire...

    That's exactly why the wins are meaningless. Like I said, I'm playing devil's advocate here, any trade that involves Cousins assumes you're getting back the mythical 'Good Cousins' that gets his shit...

    I think Cousins would love playing with Lowry, DeRozan, Carroll and Patterson. He's been playing with shit rosters and a coaching carousel for so long that he's probably dying for a competent roster...

    Is he though? Do we really know that? It's easy to extrapolate from where he is now but we haven't seen Valaciunas used as a primary option for longer than stretches. To to say he's unguardable based...

    Because Boogie could rule the East after the age of LeBron.

    Seriously, I know he's nuts but god damn he's a monster, a top 5 talent and what he needs to grow up is tailor made for what the Raps...

    I don't think this works unless you can say with certainty that the collective passing skill of Biyombo and Valanciunas will improve by a significant amount. Would get really ugly at times if they...

    If I were Masai in complete fantasy mode I'd let DeRozan walk, trade Lowry for Exum and keep Carroll to dump on whichever contender would give me the best package at the deadline.

    What you call the right thing in this situation is a matter of opinion, not fact. I'd rather call it a big mistake, letting an asset that you've put an enormous amount of time and development into...

    You see iso as the gameplan, I see it as the only option left (usually with under 8 on the clock sadly) because the opponent is going under every screen and daring the Raps to beat them from the...

    I absolutely think it's asking too much with DeRozan and Lowry slumping the way they are.

    Look, the team had a great year, but just because they won a lot of regular season games doesn't make...

    Sure he's settling for frustratingly stupid long range shots, but they're less contested than you might think. Sure Miami is getting a token hand up, but they're conceding that jumper rather than the...

    Any talk about this being a system issue is completely off base. This is on the players, not Casey.

    DeRozan and Lowry are missing makeable shots. Period. Most teams would be salivating for the...

    This is a tough one. If Ujiri thinks that DeRozan plus picks and/or other expendable assets nets a legit superstar over the next 2 years then keeping Lowry makes sense. You won't win a championship...

    Because our guards are facing George Hill and Paul George instead of Goran Dragic and Old Man Wade.

    Not the whole reason by any means, but sure makes it easier to get your game off.

    I wouldn't call it sad at all!

    A lot of the regulars on here are of the 'championship or bust' mentality, as I used to be. Typically that means a desire to focus on the draft and on landing that...

    Those were some painful stats to digest, but I disagree with the conclusion that it's not on the players. I think it is, even if it's not necessarily their fault.
